The Child Development Associate Program: A Guide to Training. (Second Edition).
Hamby, Trudy; And Others
This training guide presents background information about the Child Development Associate (CDA) program, including a definition of quality CDA training that incorporates six criteria established by the Office of Child Development. The purposes of the guide are (1) to provide a clear and specific description of the CDA criteria in order to promote design and development of training approaches consistent with these goals, and (2) to help training project staff determine the extent to which quality training is being provided. From a historical perspective, chapter 1 provides a description of the major components of the national CDA effort. Chapter 2 presents an overview of the key features and elements of CDA training, while chapter 3 offers an in-depth consideration of the six CDA training criteria and presents a framework and other information that can be helpful in implementing a quality CDA training program. This third chapter is divided into eight sections: an introductory and a summary section as well as one section for each of the training criteria. A glossary of CDA terms and procedures and a list of resources for CDA programs are appended. (RH)
